    Oh…..my….goodness.

    Thank you very, very much, Daimion. This is a FANTASTIC deal that everyone should take advantage of.

  • D1rk-Knight

    Nice, definitely I’ll download it. Thank you for the info. ^^

  • Sony should have had this out already, giving it plenty of time for gamers and generating buzz for the PS3. As it is it is very close to a bunch of good games coming out and I can see people saving their dollars for other stuff instead. The timing is poorly thought out. Still, looking forward to it. Better late than never.

  • @ Kenshin001
    It probably wouldn’t have been much good coming out before it was finished. And remember they’ve added trophies, custom soundtracks, and more tracks in recent months. If they had released earlier it would have been 1/2 the game it is.

    But regardless, at this price a lot of people will by this game.

    My question is is the date the same for Europe?

  • AdversaryofGod

    Can I trust a release date? NO.

    Tell me when the game is finished and is out.

    Thank You

  • It would be nice to buy if I could find me a PSN CARD to purchase it with. WHERE THE HECK ARE THEY? IT’s SEPTEMBER and almost OCTOBER and the cards are still not out. what is wrong with you people, do you like being last in the console race? Do you like your customers to be angry all the time? Seems like you do to me.

    HURRY UP! I’M A HUGE WIPEOUT FAN!!!!!

  • Thank you very much Daimion, you just made my day ;-)

  • Half_life000111

    YES!!!! THANK YOU… I’m picking up this…. LBP & R2…. my wallets crying but I’m soo happy, and the 25th rumor was true… now how big is the download?

  • Half_life000111

    @THATPSPGUY

    The PSN Cards are out and they will only be sold from Sept 16th on out. Call your local Blockbuster, I did and they had them in stock… I even got to see them… they just didn’t realize till they read the box that they couldn’t activate the cards until the 16th….

  • Sounds awesome – I’ll definitely be picking this up.

    Any news on a “CONFIRMED” EU Price/Release Date?

  • Downloadable Goty, Siren watch out!

  • I have all my WipeOut games behind glass. It would have been nice to have a disk, but will still buy.

  • THANK YOU!! YESS!!! THIS IS AMAZING!! If you don’t buy this game you might as well throw your PS3 out of a moving car, because this is what the PSN is all about!!!!

  • This is awesome news, can’t wait to get it !

  • By the way, this is a dream come true for me and I will be playing this game for the rest of my life. We havent had a console wipeout game in far too long. Thanks again!

  • o yahhhhhhhhhhhhhh finalllllllly
    this, socom and fifa are the games that are waiting for the most!!!
    yaaa baby yaaaaaaaa

  • Truely cannot wait to get my hands on this :)

  • Thanks!

    Are You planning a Blu-Ray release of this title (or maybe in Europe?)

  • SinsToJudge

    Fantastic!

    EU and AU will get this soon** no doubt.

    **2010

  • Excellent! Sounds good to me!

  • @nbnz,

    Review codes are already out, the game has been demoed at numerous events. I don’t think it is a matter of it not being ready. Could be wrong, but it seems more a matter of Sony’s tendency to delay things.

  • This game is going to be awesome. This will be my first Wipeout.

  • Please make some DLC for this game, more remastered racetracks, possibly brand new tracks? ship skins, cold storage alternative soundtrack, anything! $20 is a steal and I’m itching to dump more money into this game for more and more content for as long as you guys can possibly make it. =)

  • Can we get confirmation of a worldwide release on the 25th? Come on, you know you want to. Make lots of people happy.

  • Now you’re talkin’. That’s a day 1 download for me. Thanks, Sony!!!

  • @23
    You can copy Cold Storage from WipeOut to the HDD. I did it and play it with WarHawk. ;)

  • karmacoma01

    Sweeeeeet! I really hope it´s released worldwide the same day.

  • Can not wait for this :)

    Is the release date the same for the EU?
    and will it be £11.99 as some websites have already reported?

    Thanks! :)

  • Finally, at last.

    What will the United Kingdom price be? I work it out to be £11.20 ?

  • Good news, will get for sure on day 1.

  • Sony when are you gonna release PSN cards in Canada?? I Want to buy this,but i need psn cards.

  • September 25th ,real close…

  • So close awesome. Can’t wait. At that price they should pack in the game download with a new system.

  • Mana Knight

    Too good of news. I’ll be buying for sure. :D

  • Californian

    PEALED not PEELED. Come on Sony.
    Anyway, enough of my grammar pet peeve.
    This game looks AWESOME!!! Definitely buying it on the day it releases. I don’t know if I’ll get that Platinum trophy though. I want one so bad!

  • I’d like 4-player splitscreen, is there a possibillity this will be implemented at a later time?

    The support for 4-players is low in general if you don’t look at sports-games and if you have a 84 inch projector-screen you want to use it to it’s best.

  • darkiewonder

    Ship editor?

  • Excellent, hoping Europe does not get screwed on the release date.

  • xXoONiko_9OoXx

    Is there going to be a playable demo for this game?

  • Thanks Damion.

    I’d been reading at other blogs that a rumor was out about Wipeout HD coming out very soon, but thought I wouldn’t say anything until the official post was out.

    I’ve been waiting, I’m sure like many others since the announcement of this game for it to be out.

    Glad to see the news.

  • Awesome!

    I’ve been waiting for this, you can guarantee I’ll be buying it the second I get home from work or it gets put up. Thanks for the update!

  • Damion….just wondering if you have the amount of space this download will take up on our HDD.

    I just upgraded my harddrive last week, as I wanted to be ready for all the great stuff coming out, but many people are at their limit, or very near.

    I know other games I’m hearing coming out could be around 5 GB….just thought the estimate now, may be beneficial in case other PS3 players wanted to upgrade their HDD before this comes out.

    Thanks again.

  • Europe?

  • Like Always, SCEE voice is out of service…
    Is the date the same for Europe ?

  • Chrisrahosiris

    10 days until WipEout goodness on my PS3

  • LN_MEXWARRIOR

    $19.99!!! That’s the sweet point! This is a must get title!!!

    Thanks for finally bringing the game to the PSN!

  • Hey thats my b-day….do i get a discount! :)

  • about bloody time!!

  • Finally!

    Been waiting for this since the announce of the PS3. Although I’m a little disappointed that we do not get Eliminator or Head On Mode!!!!

    Hoping for some awesome DLC with these Modes and of course some more WipEout Pulse-tracks.

    Love you guys/gals at Siny Studio Liverpool!

  • Too little too late Sony. I only have a PSP now my PS3 is gone for good. BTW Any chance we could get yet another PSP WipEout game? Also please keep the hardcore support comeing for the PSP! We need all those killer Japanese RPGs on the PSP, we also need another exclusive StarWarsBattleFront game on the PSP! (one that takes full advantage of the new dev kits, and unlocked 333MHz)
